The Servlet specification is not always as clearly written as it could
be. As one of the EG members, that is partly my fault.

I wasn't too involved in the the non-blocking discussions as other EG
members were for more experienced than me with non-blocking at the time.
I don't recall anything that would not permit what you are trying to do
but I'd need to double check that. I'd need to check the archives to see
if there was anything there that didn't make the specification document.

It could simply be a bug in Tomcat. I've had a quick look and I think I
might have a fix (thanks to Remy for the hint earlier in the thread) but
the non-blocking code has proved tricky to get right and I want to do
some more testing. I should get to that later today.
